this was a very interesting place to visit. Nice and factual history. Recommend the tour. Probably more fitting for adults or teens, although some children might find it interesting. Great history.

You should be a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright to visit this house, otherwise it is just another house to tour. Interesting story about the house and how it was moved.
